​Bournemouth midfielder Cook on U20 WC final win: 'The best day of his life'

Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook says that lifting the U20 World Cup with the England side has been the best day of his life.

Cook, who started the 1-0 final win against Venezuela on Saturday, says that the win is yet to sink in with him.

"It was unbelievable, the best day of my life, by far," said Cook. "It has not sunk in yet. I am so proud of all the lads and the staff. I want to say a massive thank you to my family and my friends for all their support.

"It has been a wonderful day and a wonderful experience being here in Korea. We have topped it off with a win and it was the best day. I could not have asked for any more from the lads. It was incredible."
